Checklist and Reading Recommendations#


For code auto-formatting#

  • Write your development code in your favourite IDE/text-editor.

  • Enable auto formatting in your editor by tweaking the preferences/settings.

  • Type Ctrl + s (windows, linux) or + s (mac) to save the work to format the code.

For static code analysis#

  • Build the project to enable linters to spot the errors/warnings in the code (if any).

  • Make relevant changes and repeat the above step.

  • Commit and push the changes to remote Github/GitLab/BitBucket repository to run the pre-deployment tests.

For robust code#

  • Find assumptions in your program, and make them explicit.

  • Write if/else statements to test your assumptions.

  • Consider errors that may be raised in your program.

  • Decide per assumption and error what should happen: redirect, report, or abort.
